Jonathan Banks Joins <i>Better Call Saul</i>

If you weren’t already shivering with excitement over Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spin-off featuring Walter White’s hilariously shifty lawyer, new information from Deadline might just send you over the edge.

Deadline reports that Jonathan Banks, better known to Breaking Bad fans as Mike Ehrmantraut, will be series regular on the new AMC show, opposite of star Bob Odenkirk.

Banks joined the cast of Breaking Bad at the end of Season Two, and spent the better part of the final three seasons as a series regular. Most recently he has appeared on Community as the recurring character Buzz Hickey.

Odenkirk and Banks are the only known actors to be cast in the prequel, but both Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston have expressed interest in a possible appearance. That means more good news could be on the way for those mourning the loss of our favorite meth-cooking superteam.
